Delete shared links directly from within XD
It should be possible to delete a shared link within the file or at least regenerate a link, not only through the link manager.
For example, if I use a file created for project A for another purpose (project B), the existing link is no longer relevant for the project B but is still relevant for project A. So I need manage this link within the file

I have the same problem as everyone in this thread. Needs to be fixed. Have already sent wrong link to client and developers and client starts to think i don't know what i'm doing and starting to talk about not using an unfinished tool like XD and wants to switch to Sketch. :/
Here, wouldn't that fix all these problems? It would sure fix my issues with current inability to clean up all the links within Adobe Xd.
- add delete functionality for existing links to Adobe Xd.
BUG: Deleting a link from the cloud via a browser does not remove it from the document. Now if I'm in a doc where I deleted its original link, it still displays in the drop-down list. How Adobe, uhg such cringe.
Not only that but if you make a new doc based on another doc that already had a link, that link will be in that new doc? What

Before the changes to the sharing setup, it was a matter of changing the name of the share link in the copied document and it would create a new one, but leave the old one alone so that stayed connected to the old file. Now it retains that information and I do as others are saying and copy most of my files to a new one for a starting point.
This will quickly get out of hand if I continue to make files the same way.
In fact, we need both.
- Clear shared links while saving as
- Manage links within the file, so we can clear them when we duplicate a file in the system file explorer
I was thinking of a way to remove them manually in the file, but removing it while "saving as" is even more relevant.
it's even better
If I understood your ask correctly - Save as of an existing XD document should not carry over existing published links from it. Is that understanding accurate?
